They are both listed with UMass offers, but I don't know if it was MM or DK.

I believe Akok Akok was offered by McCall.

A name to keep an eye on in the class of 19 is a local kid from Palmer, Matt Niemczura 6'5" SG going to Macduffie in the fall, He was mentioned in an article about the Elite 75 where they compared him to Bailey Patella. I think once he gets to Macduffie his recruiting is going to take off. Supposed to be a great shooter.

But Patella never went to Palmer High. He played at Lenox before Vermont Academy. Too bad we let him go to Vermont. He would have been a good get for UMass.

UMass Amherst visited Gould Academy in Maine today to see our guy Wildens Leveque. 6'9 forward with big time upside. Next up!
It looks like he already has offers from Rutgers and Providence. He's a Mass. kid.

UMass was the first school to offer this kid. I am hoping that McCall is keeping in touch with him because he would be a HUGE local addition for UMass. I would hate losing him to a school like UConn or URI.

Martin is now in the class of 2020 after transferring to The Master's School (anyone remember David Gibbs?). We have 3 guys from Springfield on the roster (Baldwin, Brantley and Franklin). It's more likely than not that at least one of them knows Martin. I would like to think that they could woo him to UMass but his personality has me thinking he wants a higher level program. We'll see in a year or two.

From the MassLive Article:
Martin committed to The Master’s School in Connecticut in July, reclassifying to the class of 2020.
